Are you ready for technology that you can wear?
Companies like Google, Apple and Intel definitely think so. They’ve been teaming up with some of the biggest names in fashion to make wearable technology the next big thing.
Now Ralph Lauren has decided to take the fashion tech trend one step further with a shirt that wirelessly syncs workouts to your phone. There are special threads in the fabric that pick up on changes in your heart rate and breathing. All that information is then sent to an app on your trusty smartphone.
Popular exercise tracker FitBit also got a stylish makeover from famous designer Tory Burch, and fashion icon Diane Von Furstenberg recently worked with Google to give its Glass an edgier look.

This is so cool! it will definitely be the next big thing! I will probably get one myself!!!

i think it would because say if your in a meeting and and if you get a email. You will not be able to read it but if you have a tech watch you could
wearable technology sounds awesome and i kinda want one ~ meh (Daisy)
Wow that’s awesome it’s like a mini iPhone on your wrist!!!!
And by the way kids should have it too especially the ones that don’t have smart phone!! I wish I would get it because I am 9 and I don’t have phone. it is floating in the water!!!
Yes! This is the next big thing! It is like a small iPhone only with some apps: email, clock, and notes. Everybody say YES IT IS THE NEXT BIG THING!!!
i what to have some of this stuff it is so coool
I really do not think this will be the next big thing. With everybody and their smartphones, I really doubt people would want to spend money on smartwatches and tech clothing. Smart-wear would not be very appealing to people unless smart-wear will enable them to do something they normally would not be able to do.
What if some one does not have that stuff
Yes love the idea wear it
What a neat way for technology to come out into the fashion world.
Being an Apple employee technology is the new future. Being more organized and more prepared for things in life that we need to be prepared for is what we need to embrace ourself for. A new future.
I think it is the next big thing b/c it might not be as hard to lose it.
Yes it is smaller than a phone but it is still a distraction we don’t need more people dying from distracted driving .
